Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party nominee for president of the United States, held a rally Saturday evening in Cincinnati.
Johnson, who served two terms as governor of New Mexico, reiterated that there is a third choice for the presidency. Despite his countless differences with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and the Republicans’ choice, Donald Trump, there is one thing he agrees with them on.
“I agree 100 percent with Donald Trump’s No. 1 issue in this campaign, and I agree with Hillary Clinton 100 percent on her No. 1 issue this campaign. Don’t vote for Clinton, and don’t vote for Trump … They’re horrible.”
Johnson said that voting for a third-party candidate was not a throwaway choice, saying that the country cannot afford a Clinton or Trump presidency.
“It doesn’t take a crystal ball to realize that if Hillary Clinton is elected, she is going to be under federal investigation, something unprecedented,” Johnson said. “The next four years is going to be filled with impeachment smoke.”
“On the other side, you’ve got Donald Trump, who I thought was toast.”
Johnson said he strongly disagrees with Trump’s push to build a wall on the country’s southern border, saying America should support job-seeking immigrants.
